Monsters University Trailer Debuts with Four Different Variations
06.20.12 by Mandy
With a new Disney Pixar movie, Brave, hitting theaters this week, now is a great time to start promoting the studio's next movie, Monsters University. Four variations of one trailer have just been released online and it looks like this animated flick will deliver far more laughs than scares.
The movie is a prequel to the 2001 hit Monsters, Inc., and it follows Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) at college, where they weren't always the best of friends. This new trailer reveals a few facts about the new movie and these already beloved characters. First, it seems that, in their younger days, Sulley was the bigger prankster and Mike was the more studious of the pair. Second, monsters dreams aren't that different than everyone else's. And finally, nothing sets a mood like a disco ball and some Spandau Ballet. Well, maybe everybody already knew that last thing.
Really, the variations on this trailer are fairly minor, but they're all funny thanks to the improvisational stylings of Billy Crystal.
Along with Crystal and Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Ken Jeong, John Ratzenberger, Kelsey Grammer, Rob Riggle, and Frank Oz are all voicing characters in the movie. It's directed by Dan Scanlon and is slated for a June 21, 2013 release date.
